THE LIBRARY ON THE BEACH With the arrival of summer and holidays you can gather some time to relax and have fun, but also to read a good book. For this reason the Puglia Region, in collaboration with the Teatro Pubblico Pugliese and the various bookshops that have supported the initiative, have thought of a tour along all the beaches of Puglia, a van full of books, ready to cheer the rest under the umbrella. From Gargano to Salento, different lines will make the coast to coast, offering not only books but also cultural activities for young and old. There are two stops in Gallipoli: the 28th at Lido San Giovanni and the 29th at Lido Pizzo, both located along the southern coast of the city. For more information on the initiative:

TODAY IN CAMPSITE Down: winery by night at page 7: the roman theatre of Lecce

VERMENTINO FROM 1980 In Salento The Vermentino Li Cuti was born in the 80s from an experiment conducted with the scholar Giovanni De Rinaldis. This vine here, in the IonianGallipolitan arch, has found favorable soil and microclimate. The intuition came to Carlo Antonio Coppola from the memory of the vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in the area of the lower Rhone in France, which he visited in 1952, characterized by a very pebbly soil. The experts Antonio Calò and Angelo Costacurta praised the Vermentino Li Cuti in their book "Dei Vitigni Italici". Try it as a fresh aperitif.

From 1400 to the present a journey through family history with sailing boats and art, entrepreneurship, viticulture and hospitality The Coppola, of Sicilian origin, came to Gallipoli in the fifteenth century. In the Beautiful City, Orsino Coppola in 1489 married Laura Cuti, descendant of a noble family of the place, which brought in dowry an estate of 8 hectares in the countryside of Sannicola, handed down from father to son for 15 generations and still owned by Coppola and cultivated with vineyards. In 1715, Carlo Antonio Coppola built Palazzo Coppola in Alezio, in the cellars of which there was a millstone for crushing grapes and a barrels cellar capable of holding 20 large chestnut wood barrels. In the next generation, we remember Giovanni, journalist, founded the daily newspaper "Lo Spartaco" (1887-1914). In the twentieth century the farm Coppola began to consolidate its entrepreneurial character thanks to innovations introduced by Niccolò, son of Giovanni, who graduated in engineering in 1921, during the period of grape harvesting was fully dedicated to the winery property until he decided to build a winery equipped with modern techniques of vinification. The dedication of the engineer Niccolò found fertile ground in the inclinations of one of his sons, Carlo Antonio, who in 1947 gained a specialization in viticulture, oenology and aromathery oenology at the Regia Scuola Enologica Umberto I in Alba. In the same year, thanks to the professionalism of Carlo Antonio began bottling the wines produced. The far-sighted corporate philosophy that is based on the combination of innovation and tradition, is strongly outlined in those years (continue on page 6) 3

Since 1489, a great passion for wine

The history of Cantina Coppola is closely linked to that of the Coppola family and dates back to 1489. In 2012 Niccolò Coppola s.r.l. was included in the national register of historic companies and was awarded the National Prize "From father to son. Il gusto di fare impresa" promoted by the Milan and Monza Chambers of Commerce. The only winery to preserve the tradition of the territory by bottling the ALEZIO DOC, a small denomination of negroamaro (from the areas of Gallipoli, Alezio, Tuglie and Sannicola) to which Carlo Antonio Coppola, founder of the winery and father of the present owners Giuseppe and Lucio gave a fundamental contribution. Among the agronomic practices, those of organic farming are preferred, such as green manure and mechanical weeding. Harvesting is done by hand. The company also produced extra virgin and virgin olive oil (by choice) from its own olive groves.
